Poly has unveiled a partner program that combines the Polycom and Plantronics programs.
The new global program features a unified portal with easy, real-time access to all assets, training, tools and content that partners need to successfully go to market. It brings together 15,000 partners around the world, and is designed so partners of all sizes can more easily deliver compelling and customized solutions to their customers. The Poly partner program shifts the evaluation of partner levels from a focus on revenue to an emphasis on involvement with Poly to support innovation and mutual growth.
The program includes a new Poly partner portal launching on April 10, which will replace Polycom Partner Connect and Plantro.net. The portal offers an interactive and collaborative space to easily connect partners to Poly, support technical expertise, sales, marketing, and continuous real-time learning.
The Poly partner portal will also provide a comprehensive library of images, marketing assets and co-brandable templates so partners can effectively and efficiently market to customers. Poly University provides a full suite of curriculum by specialty to help partners satisfy certification and specialization requirements as well as elective learning. A robust certification program provides individual sales and pre-sales training in various product and service categories.
Sales tool will also be made available including customer testimonials, videos, promotions and a demo discount program to help drive business. Plus, all Polycom and Plantronics partners will receive access to the Poly partner portal on April 10, 2020, which will be available in North America, EMEA and APAC regions.
